I am truly a book hoarder. No question. Probably going to end up with three thousand books by end of this year. I have the titles and authors computerized and sometime in the near future I will organize them appropriately again. The move unfortunately put them in disarray. I can't even imagine the list of 'to be read'. I know the next one to read though. Does that count?


What a dilemma, how might you manage to read all of those and the books that you just HAVE to read? I have a few books that I thought I might like but didn't get on with, yet, one day I might but I can't imagine a pile that high. Good luck!

I got rid of boxes and boxes of books last fall. That doesn't mean some of them are not on my kindle...

Arthur Ransome! A childhood favorite of mine, they should be in your re-read pile.

I found your blog looking for insight on a knitting project in a letter from 1861-telegraph stockings-something like, knit two fingers and then drop every other stitch.

Thanks for the blog.

I confess Ive read only Swallows and Amazons so far, my current excuse being that I bought the rest all at once. But I did enjoy SA very much, obviously! And being a bit of a polar geek, Im looking forward to the Nansen/Johansen one with additional interest!Thanks for commenting,Jeanne
